2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/2 ounce rosemary simple syrup (directions to follow)
3/4 ounce Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail
1 ounce Ginger beer
3-4 sprigs of fresh rosemary for garnish
To Create Rosemary Simple Syrup:
Steep 2-3 sprigs of rosemary in 1 cup of hot water, like you would a tea, until color has changed and flavor is quite potent. Add 1 cup sugar and stir until dissolved.
To Mix Cocktail:
Shake first four ingredients together, strain into cocktail glass over ice.
Top with ginger beer and garnish with a rosemary sprig. For optimal rosemary flavor, clap the sprig between your hands to release fresh herb oils.
